Shells Color dare


Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted for a while my girls are back to school the last couple of weeks and just getting back into the swing of things there.


I created today's card for the Colour dare which wanted Night of Navy, Marina Mist and river rock.

I wanted layers and I created them. I ummed and ahhhed what I was going to use for the centre, I wanted flowers but the them screamed nautical to me so I went with my trusty Stipple shells set from Stampin Up! The sentiment is from the Greeting Farm's Shepard boy set.

Thank you for looking.

Love is in the air


Hi everyone I made this card to suit several challenges today. I used the SC182 sketch from SCS website and then coloured in this very cute image from Whiff of Joy with copics. I cut him out and stuck him on using dimensionals. I distressed the edges using close cocoa ink.

It is a very simple card, but I think it looks cute.

I am entering him to :

Pearl in pink!


Hello Everyone

Today's card is for Mad for markers Crazy hair colouring challenge. Using copics we have to colour an image not using the traditional hair colours eg blonde, brunette, red etc. We had to use another colour.

I have chosen pink and I think I used a colour combo that most people wouldn't use I used, R85, RV34 and E04 for the hair. I used E95, E02 and E11 for the skin and SU Eggplant to colour in the bubbles in her hair and her costume. Her eyes are YG03 and her lips are r85.

The image is Sweet November Stamps' Pearl Tidepool that has been blown up using my scanner, I just love her face, and I feel I will be using her more. The designer paper is from SU along with bling. The flowers are from Kaisercraft.

Thank you for looking.

Love you much Pearl Tidepool


Hi Everybody,

I made this cute card for several challanges. Firstly the colour scheme is for The Colour Q challenge

I stamped Pearl Tidepool from Sweet November Stamps and blew her up, well just made her bigger so that she would fit into a 5.5cm square. I coloured her in with copics to match the colour theme. Since I didn't have poppy parade stamp pad I stamped the Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue flower firstly in pumpkin pie then in real red to get the poppy parade look. I used the leaf from the Carte Postale SU set in Chocochip and used the the Well Scripted sentiment to qualify for the Wild Orchid Love is challenge.
